Now I like the song and love the video.
Here is why:
Reason #1: Cosmetics Her make-up is to die for. Those cat eyes in dramatic blacks and purples, seafoams and olive greens are gorgeous. Perfectly complemented with glittery fuchsia and metallic orange lipstick. Her day-glo nails are pretty fabulous too. Now if I could only get in that bathroom to see what brands she is using. I am obsessed with these close-ups and make-up suggestions.
Reason #2: Hair Bouffants are my thing especially the messy beehive kind that show a bit of roots. I also wish I could get my own hair to have that perfectly dirty and tousled look. I would give anything for that volume.
Obsessed does not even begin to describe.
Reason #3: Yellow Fur I don't like fur except when it is done in a really fun obnoxious way. If you watched the video, you know what I am talking about. I have been thinking about her yellow coat non-stop since the moment I saw the video. If there was a faux fur version, I would probably buy it.
Reason #4: Fun This is video is pretty much the epitome of why I love Beyonce. She is fun, likes playing with fashion, being creative and most important...being crazy. I also love seeing her dance with her sister Solange and Kelly Rowland. I want to find this trailer park asap and dance with them.
Kelly aka 2/3 of Destiny's Child
Reason #5: Fashion (duh) Although Beyonce is trying to convey a laid-back, low-cost lifestyle, don't let her fool you. Those fashions are as designer as they come...from a feather Louis Vuitton coat to vintage Pucci hotpants. Those Rodarte peek-a-boo booties are not too bad either. Perfect for lounging on a lawn chair...in a green fur vest... in the middle of summer. Only Queen B.
Last but not least, perhaps the most stunning still from the whole video.
Perfection. I love gold sequins.
My only complaint? The Andre 3000 omit for J. Cole. I am dying to know what Andre would have worn to the party. Probably a fur vest too.
No Monday morning blues here cause we like to party, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.
